Re: Why are wind forecasts frequently way off? Probabilities!

Yah that's the basic recipe for a sea breeze & works great in a ton of places, others not so much. I know I was disappointed in NYC often with that. I even had a kitesurf meteorologist look into it and he couldn't do much better. I can't remember exactly why but basically I think there was just too ...

Re: Why are wind forecasts frequently way off? Probabilities!

Super helpful Peter! That's interesting about CT. However, do you think the CT numerical forecasts pick up the thermal "strength" accurately? If you look at the historical forecasted wind stats at windguru for Kite Beach or CT it says there's only 5 days/month with 22 knots. That's pretty low! https...

Re: Why are wind forecasts frequently way off? Probabilities!

Thanks! Hmmm yah good point about the 17m comment. That was more of a joke, I didn't really think about the possible implications if someone took it seriously. And yah I guess rain systems are generally larger and hence you can attach probabilities. Whereas wind, particularly localized winds, are to...

Why are wind forecasts frequently way off? Probabilities!

Hey all, Who here actively use their wind maps when looking at wind forecasts? It wasn't until too long ago that I started using wind maps and realized how much more useful they are versus regular numerical forecasts. Anyone know why rain is forecasted with probabilities (ie the probability of rain)...

Re: Kitewave on July - no cold water - where to go?

I ran this search on our site, https://kitesurf.ripatrip.com/ - min 17 knots 4days/week - 2m+ waves - July Our wave data isn't monthly unfortunately, but you can cross reference with Magic Seaweed. My thoughts: Consistent wind & waves is a tough combo in July. If you can go a little north you can su...
